American announced in August that they would return to Israel starting on 9/9/20 with 3 weekly 787-9 flights between Dallas and Tel Aviv.

American pulled out of the Tel Aviv market on 1/4/16 after they merged with USAirways. At the time they flew daily from Philadelphia to Tel Aviv on an Airbus A330.

American will get a subsidy of about $840,000 if they operate the service for a year.

They opened bookings for the flight on 10/15.

Currently you can only book flights in September and October, but apparently American likes what they see, as they have announced that they plan on moving from 3 weekly flights to daily flights starting on October 25th. The daily flights are not yet available for sale.

It’s a strange time to go daily on flights to Tel Aviv. Many airlines bulk up on flights to Tel Aviv during peak season between Pesach in the spring and Sukkos in the fall.

American is launching flights after the peak summer season and then going daily after the Sukkos holiday rush. I get that they probably have extra airplane capacity in the winter due to drawdown from seasonal summer service to Europe, but this all seems a bit counter-intuitive.

But clearly someone at American knows what they’re doing. After all, they gave DFW-TLV flight number 18 😀


What do you make of American going daily on the Dallas to Tel Aviv route starting 10/25/20?

If you’ve ever been to DFW, you’ll immediately notice the high concentration of Mega-Churches… I’m sure these chevra were the main target of AA in this area


At the same time they are grabbing a lot of top tier members from LAX who have been waiting for year for AA to fly to Tel Aviv. If this one is successful ill bet they add LAX – TLV by end of 2020.


Why from Dallas??? How many in the Dallas area are looking to fly to TLV?

As I mentioned going back and forth with you on multiple posts, I expect this route to be a huge success.

I expect my other prediction will come to fruition sooner rather than later – DL (re)launching ATL flights. And it’ll be a success this time.


Lots of Israelis are going to Central America such as Cancun Cozumel Guatamala and Panama


There’s lots of Christian tourists in Israel at the moment from the US – I guess it’s a trend to fly at a cheaper time to travel,


Now that United has told its Premier members where they can go, everyone is looking for alternatives.

Can anyone recommend the best credit card to take advantage of this route?

I love the idea of daily flights.
If the price would be right I would go!
